Brown Velour Dress

Added Dec 30, 2008

When I found this velour, I was so anxious to start working with it. I had a boat-neckline dress on my mind for some time, and thought this fabric was the perfect choice for it.
The dress pattern was mix of two patterns and my alterations. The starting point was this m-sewing pattern, that I altered by cutting front panel on fold. Also, I made several fitting adjustments.
Then I made a large boat neckline and figured that raglan sleeves would be better than normal sleeves. So, the next alteration was to make raglan sleeves adjustments.
I used the tnt blouse pattern from the BWOF 10/2004, No. 116 (take a look at my Gold blouse) and added raglan sleeves adjustments making sure that the boat neckline I had previously made wasn’t changed. Here, I made some sleeves alterations – made them narrower.
Finally, I added a band to the neckline to close it a bit, since it was too open.
The fabric is a bit stretchy, so I can move my body easily even though the dress is very fitted. I didn’t add the lining, but I wear the dress with slip under it.

Material Notes

Velour, Invisible zipper, buttons

    Extra si iskombinovala ova dva kroja!!! Haljina je ispala fenomenalno!! Kako je dobar materijal, sija se bas onoliko koliko treba, uopste nije napadan!! Sa rajsfeslusom si odradila odlican posao, mene je bas mucio ovaj skriveni kad sam radila satensku haljinicu!! Svaka ti cast!!!
